Muscular Fasciculation


Presentation

  • It is characterized by loss of the anterior horn cells in the spinal cord and cranial nerves nuclei. 1 Patients present weakness and muscle wasting.[n.neurology.org]
  • Neither muscular wasting nor weakness was found, although the condition was present for an average of 4.7 years and, in one patient, as long as 10 years… CONTINUE READING[semanticscholar.org]
  • This heavily revised new edition provides complete coverage of the nervous system including anatomic and physiologic presentation of disorders, recommended examination procedures, neurodiagnostic and laboratory testing, diagnostic reasoning, and neurologic[books.google.de]
  • Neither muscular wasting nor weakness was found, although the condition was present for an average of 4.7 years and, in one patient, as long as 10 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The second section presents each neuromuscular disorder, covering clinical aspects and extensive information on the distinctive electrophysiological findings typical of the disease.[books.google.de]
Burning Pain
  • Five cases of a chronic neuromuscular syndrome consisted of muscular aching and sometimes burning pain, fasciculations, cramps, fatigue, and occasional paresthesia.[semanticscholar.org]
  • Abstract Five cases of a chronic neuromuscular syndrome consisted of muscular aching and sometimes burning pain, fasciculations, cramps, fatigue, and occasional paresthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • If these measures don’t help, ask your physician to refer you to a neurologist for a workup that should be able to identify – or eliminate – any neurological concern.[drweil.com]

Treatment

  • You'll confidently identify the signs and symptoms of disease, know when additional diagnostic testing is indicated, accurately interpret diagnostic data, and recommend effective treatment options.[books.google.de]
  • Treatment : The treatment would vary, depending on the underlying cause. Drug therapy and physical therapy are both integral to the treatment. The affected individual may need to use braces for support. Surgery may be recommended in some cases.[healthhearty.com]
  • Has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States or a currently accepted medical use with severe restrictions.[drugs.com]
  • Treatment in more severe cases will depend on the underlying cause of the fasciculation.[sharecare.com]
  • Results: Results of this study showed that, in the treatment group 24 patients (48%) and in the control group 35 patients (70%) complained from myalgia.[journal.rums.ac.ir]

Prognosis

  • A complete history intake and neurological examination will lead to a sensible diagnostic work-up and to set a prognosis. Clinical differential diagnosis is presented in table 1.[bjmp.org]
  • The prognosis is solely dependent upon the underlying etiologies. Myokymia is considered benign when detected in patients after strenuous exercise. Prognosis Prognosis is related directly to the underlying etiology.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Prognosis [ edit ] The prognosis for those suffering from diagnosed benign fasciculation syndrome is generally regarded as being good to excellent. The syndrome causes no known long-term physical damage.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Despite the cause and treatments for benign fasciculation syndrome being uncertain, the prognosis is generally good. No long-term physical damage occurs as a result of this condition.[phaa.com]
  • I don't immediately type the symptoms into Google to find the most gruesome prognosis. That's not to say that I'm free from anxiety: there's always a nagging feeling that maybe this symptom is the one I should see my GP about.[independent.co.uk]

Pathophysiology

  • Although there remains some ambiguity in terms of the pathophysiology of myofascial pain and its overlap with other chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, it can be agreed that myofascial pain is defined by regional musculoskeletal pain and[spine.org]
  • Pathophysiology The clinical phenomenon is characterized by its classic quivering movement of the involved muscle without movement of the joint. Myokymia can be seen in muscles innervated by cranial or spinal nerves.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • As to pathophysiology, the muscle cramps may arise from spontaneous discharges of the motor nerves, this may origin at neuronal level and then transferred through the nerve trunks to the muscular fibers or it may begin at nerve trunks level by activation[nnjournal.net]
